I am a big fan of Etsy.com, and my latest find is The Small Book Company. Jewelry artist Nicolette Tallmadge creates tiny earrings shaped like books. They were too cute to resist, so I ordered a pair.
The company is geared toward book lovers who want to show their love and appreciation of books by dangling a pair from their ears. The tiny book covers are made from printed recycled paper, and each pair comes on an earring card that doubles as a mini book. Open the pages, and you can read about the history of the book.
The free bookmark that came with my purchase made the product even more adorable. It features a quote by Henry Ward Beecher that reads “A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way, a counselor, a multitude of counselors.”
